I have been seeing the oncologist since 2004. He has it in remission and keeps a close check. I do what that doc tells me. So far so good so I trust him.

I would encourage you to get it. You are in the category that medical research shows that a booster shot will greatly reduce your chance of having a severe reaction to the virus.

I don’t think many people would advise you against the shots.***

Doesn’t really take a medical degree.

A lot of very very smart people, researchers, doctors, etc. Have reservations about these vaccinations. But unlike pandemics in the past, doctors and the public are being handed down directives from above, especially from politicians and government run organizations, and not being allowed to use their own years of medical experience and sound judgment. We are seeing unprecedented command and control from the top on something that is not a major threat to everyone, but certain demographics.

Many people are at more risk for the vaccine than the virus. And the response to the virus, particularly closing schools and businesses and massive quarantines and lockdowns have been far more detrimental to people than the virus itself. Not to mention wrecking the economy and now the gross amount of unemployment and hyper inflation we are seeing as a result. Plus huge disruptions to the global supply chain.

The courts are now recognizing these things and people are winning cases because this is a personal medical choice and this is an experimental vaccine. Thus people are winning cases against mandates.

And that’s the primary issue. Mandating versus properly educating and informing and letting people make a personal choice by way of informed consent.

I won hundred percent support people talking to their doctors and making informed choices for themselves. But I am adamantly opposed to unconstitutional big government mandates.

This virus is extremely contagious, but nowhere near as deadly as people have been told. In fact, based on the numbers year to date going back to January of last year in a country of roughly 328 million there have been under 700,000 total deaths. That’s.0019% death rate per 100,000 people here in America.

The Spanish flu in 1918 killed between 3 and 5% of the American population. And I it disproportionately killed young people. Covid so far has killed less than 1/5 of 1% of the American population and it very specifically targets people that are over 65 with a weak immune system or people over 25 that are obese and have diabetes.

Roughly 1200 people under the age of 25 have died from Covid, which is a drop in the bucket compared to the Spanish flu in 2018 and significantly less than the typical seasonal flu.

Let’s not kid ourselves. The death rate is being grossly over counted because we know for a fact that you can die of cancer or in a car accident, but if you also test positive for Covid you will be counted as a Covid death. Not to mention the fact that the PCR test is a terrible test from a diagnostic standpoint for Covid. It has a high rate of false positives and they are running the cycles up to 40 cycles per test when we know that anything over about 28 cycles means not only are you not sick but there’s no way you can spread it because you do not have an active virus. Thus millions of people are testing positive that will never get sick and never be contagious. Yet being treated as if they are sick and contagious and thus quarantined and treated like lepers and having their lives turned upside down!

There was no vaccine in 1918, there was no modern medicine, there was no global travel like today, there also were no quarantines or lockdowns nor mandates. SARS, MERS, H1N1, and other pandemics over the last 20 to 40 years have had higher death rates, but no quarantines no lockdowns no mandates. So what we are seeing over Covid is unprecedented propaganda, fear, misinformation, disinformation, etc. by the government and world health organization over a virus that is not nearly as deadly as others in the past and a massive overreach of government organizations and insane erosion of civil liberties.

This has absolutely been a gross overreaction and has been about money, power and control. And in America it has been a whole lot of Trump derangement syndrome.

Bottom line: if someone wants a vaccine they should get a vaccine. If someone wants to wear a mask they should wear a mask. But there should be no widespread testing and no one should be getting a test unless they have symptoms and no one should be getting forced to do anything outside of what they choose to do after consulting their doctor. That is how these things have been handled in the past, including pandemics that were much more deadly than Covid, and that is the right thing to do in a democratic country and constitutional republic.

you still do not understand how to calculate percentages.

1 out of 100 = 1%
2 out of 100 = 2%

You should be among the first to get the booster shot.

Wishing you the best of health sir!

At some point I might get the booster. We'll see. I live in Texas but my county is #1 in the state in vaccination percentage.

I really don't know how else to say this, but literally no one cares. At all. Do you. I adjusted my fiber optic bow sight today to get on at 40 yards and an grouping about 6 inches with six shot groups. There, something else no one gives a crap about. (I bet more people actually cared to hear that than hear you're getting a shot.

Not really. It's a fiber optic tru glo, but it was free (actually the whole bow was free) so I'm not complaining about it.

I went to the doctor last week, because I broke my arm in two places. He said, “well, don’t go back to those two places.”

I got the third booster today. Feel fine. My husband wanted one too though he doesn’t qualify. He tried to convince them he’d had a lobotomy. The pharm tech clearly bad no idea what that was and fell for it. The pharmacist, however, didn’t have a sense of humor and, needless to say, he didn’t get the booster.
